, the focus is shifting to his potential replacement in massachusetts. senator scott brown, who was defeated last month by elizabeth warren, appears to be the clear choice for republicans. a poll conducted before the selection of kerry found brown dominating the field. the wbur poll also shows the senator topping any democrat by eight points. brown is yet to say whether he plans to run in the special election. as for the democrats, it's only clear who's not running right now. ted kennedy jr. was floated as a possible contender, but he says he's not interested. kennedy said he was grateful for the offers of support, but he considers connecticut to be his home, leaving the door open for a potential future run in that state. and actor and director ben affleck isn't ready to leave hollywood. the "argo" star, who had showed interest in politics, confirms he doesn't want kerry's seat, saying "i love massachusetts and our political process, but i am not running for office." >>> former president george h.w. bush is in the intensive care unit at houston methodist hospital this morning after suffering

brown follower. i think he's a little different, in my book, but that tweet he sent where the president made the gop a deal and he was jumping on a plane and all of a sudden the white house denied it's true and now we see that the house of representatives, for no apparent tangible reason, going to be back in session on sunday, i personally think scott brown tweeted something he wasn't supposed to. i think there is movement there, and i think maybe his tweet offers us a clue, even though nobody want to acknowledge the characters in kabuki theser. >> isn't that interesting. andrew, it all comes as the volatility index, the fear indicator in the market has been rising. we were back in yellow black territory, above 20 for the first time since july. which would mean that the market was actually getting sweaty palms here, don't you think? >> yeah. it's getting pretty chaotic. the interesting thing to me is you look at the volume. the volume is extremely low. look at a stock like apple. shares 20 million shares in a day. today half the volume. traded 10 million shares. came out and said the ho

constructive talks, i believe those are the quotes. i have with me, ron brown, cnn contributor. ron, it's not how it works in washington, the straight up-or-down vote. >> it hasn't for a long time. there are two separate things here. there's the filibuster in the senate. but the biggest obstacles is the hastert rule in the house. it has always been hard to see bill that a majority of house republicans would vote for that would be acceptable to president obama. so in many ways, i felt for really months, the only two choices were going over the cliff or abandoning that hastert rule and john boehner being willing to bring up a bill that could be passed by democratic votes, not passed by the majority of republicans. sounded a little more optimistic on the relative gauge we have than over the last couple of weeks. >> they're now running out of venues to discuss this. they discussed it at the white house. tried to get a deal between speaker boehner and president obama. now it's gone to the senate. harry reid and mitch mcconnell will try to work something out. after that, they have run out of
: and brown bag it a little bit. i know my buddy was saying, i spend $10 a day picking up a coffee for myself and my wife. it's like 60 bucks a month. >> right. of that $10, $7, according to the "wall street journal," goes to rent and labor costs for the restaurants. it's no brainer. cut back on the restaurant bill. you can actually save money and do the math, reinvest it over the 20, 30 years you have ideally for an average worker now. that could add up to a mighty sum to put toward retirement. >> clayton: and almost pretend you're buying it by reinvesting it. taking that money and don't even pay attention to it. put it right into a savings account. >> yeah, buy stocks in it. >> clayton: finally, you talk about coming back on the -- cutting back on the cable and tv and phone. people think they need these extra digital phone services at home and might not. >> smart phone obviously -- this is your area, very competitive environment now for the smart phones, the google, samsung. these guys want to negotiate with you. the carriers in particular. there are a lot of consumers. so you could get a d
brown, partner in a.t. kearney's retail practice. do we know, you have a good number for me? is 2 1/2 the number, between 3 and 4, do we know? >> the numbers are all over the place depending on what time period you're looking at and who's numbers you're looking at. most of the consensus is going to be that 2.5%, 3% range where it was forecast at the beginning of the season. >> 3% to 4% would be better. >> it looks like it's going to be closer to the 3 number. >> every year we sweat this out and there's not a whole lot of deviation from the mean most years. is there more this year because of the cliff? >> yeah, i think the cliff is partially about it. but you have to look at where we come from. beginning of the season, we saw the economy turning around. we saw construction increasing. we saw consumer confidence being up. all of a sudden then, we had the impacts of sandy, a tragedy up in newtown, connecticut, and just a lot of other factors that just put a damper on the season. >> so, it is fair to say that it started better than it ended now. >> it started better than it ended. there
>> that wraps up to date's pro- forma session. we also heard that senator scott brown had confirmed that report. white house sources are vehemently denying that. the white house saying they have not sent up any bill or any built up to capitol hill today. we expect to have a question comes up when steny hoyer talks with reporters. that is supposed to happen in about five minutes. we will have live coverage when the minority whip speaks to reporters. in the meantime, we will bring you harry reid who opened the senate session this morning with comments on the situation, and we will hear what he had to say about the fiscal cliff now. : new year's eve is fast approaching and for decades and decades the american people have watched the ball drop in times square. it's the countdown to midnight, the start of a new year. but this year, mr. president, the american people are waiting for the ball to drop but it's not going to be a good drop. because americans' taxes are approaching the wrong direction. come the first of this year, americans will have less income than they have today. if we go over the cli
. it just turns brown and does not char. >> thank you for being such a rock star engineer. i really look up to that. u.s. spoken this whole evening about inspiration and the fact that everyone that you look up to was inspired at some time. i wonder if you have your own branch whose sole purpose is to inspire youth? >> you know, i am very familiar. i was judged at the first u.s. first competition. i was invited to be a judge and the competition was just too high schools in manchester the first year. so i am very familiar and supportive of that. i gave a talk at a brand new charter school in my home town where they are starting off kids with robotics between the ages of 6 and 13. boy, are they excited to go to school. let's see. the big problem that we had that we never could even do a student summer co-op program -- the problem is, our company was so small that it was hard for us to build barriers from one project to another. everyone of them essentially is nonpublic. richard branson is program, he tells everyone about it. in almost every other program, they don't want to leave that informat
